Good Smile Company is partnering with Phat! to bring another nice looking figure for The IDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls. The figure this time features Anzu Futaba and Kirari Moroboshi. Together, these two form the idol unit HappyHappyTwin (aka Ankira).
Anzu Futaba is a 17 year old NEET and dislikes working. She is very lazy and her interests include playing video games, watching anime, reading manga, and sleeping. She becomes an idol so she can live the rest of her life off of her royalties.
Kirari Moroboshi is a very hyper 17 year old girl who likes to say things such as “Happy-Happy” and “nyowa☆.” She is almost the complete opposite of Anzu in terms of physical appearance, personality and work ethic. These two opposites interact very well with each other and Kirari is usually the one who is able to drag Anzu to work. It’s not surprising to see these two work together as an idol unit.
The Ankira figure is manufactured by Phat! It is 1/8 scale and stands approximately 21 cm tall. Yusuke Masaki sculpted the figure and knead (Shoushin Murakawa) painted it. Good Smile Company describes the figure as follows.
From the popular anime series ‘THE IDOLM@STER CINDERELLA GIRLS’ comes a 1/8th scale figure featuring both Kirari Moroboshi & Anzu Futaba! The figure is based on the illustration by character designer Yuusuke Matsuo seen on the 4th volume of the Blu-ray & DVD jacket for the anime series.
Kirari has a cheerful smile on her face as she gently embraces Anzu, who sits relaxed in Kirari’s lap with a sleepy look on her face creating a lovely scene that captures both of the idols in a lovely atmosphere. The cute connection between their hands and the entangled hair have been carefully sculpted to completely recreate the original illustration as a set! The figure also makes use of a light color scheme to better capture the atmosphere from the original jacket illustration.
You can check out some pictures of the figure below.
The Anzu and Kirari (Ankira) figure will cost approximately ¥17,800 (without tax, about $155.42). It is set to release in July 2017.
You can pre order the figure from the Good Smile Online Shop HERE. Pre orders for the figure will close on March 2, 2017 at 12:00 JST.
Will you add these two to your collection? Do it for Anzu! (For the sake of her royalty check.)
